Body found in aircraft’s rear-wheel storage area
Jeddah (AN): A body was found in the rear-wheel storage area of a Flynas Airlines aircraft after it landed at the King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah from Nigeria on Wednesday.
Airport officials were quoted as saying by SPA that around noon, specialized teams found the body of a man while they were checking the plane before its take-off for another destination.
The relevant authorities were informed immediately to complete the procedures followed in such instances, the report said.
It is almost impossible for human beings to survive in the rear wheel area of the aircraft during flight because the temperature is ice-cold and oxygen level is almost zero.
This is not the first time where people have been found inside the rear-wheel storage area, and they often turn out to be illegal immigrants. Nigeria is considered one of the exporting countries of illegal immigrants who do not hesitate to risk their lives in pursuit of a better life abroad.
